Larry Pratt: Gun Control’s Secret Weapon

Gun rights supporters are only hurting ourselves when we give money to people like Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America. Pratt is a racist and a lunatic who plays right into the absurd liberal stereotype that gun owners are “extremists”.

A recent article in Rolling Stone reports how Pratt has spoken in front of the Aryan Nation and the KKK. He praised a Guatemalan militia leader who massacred 2,500 people as a “powerful Christian leader.” He has ties to anti-Semitic groups.

Pratt even justified Timothy McVeigh’s killing of 168 people as the act of a man who was dealing with a government that “behaves as a beast”.

Given Pratt’s track record, it is not surprising that the left wing media is using him to smear gun rights supporters as freaks and wing nuts.

Pratt and his ilk don’t care how much they damage the Second Amendment cause, as long as they are bringing in the dollars. They happily sell out conservatives by making all of us seem like we are hiding out under a tarp in Idaho with fifty machine guns.

Anyone who truly supports gun rights would never give money to this man or anyone like him.

  1. Umm...I wouldn't quote Rolling Stoned on anything related to guns. Just FYI.

    Having cast my aspersions upon this hippie rag, I will do some independent research into Mr. Pratt. But in the meantime, I'll back the Gun Rights organization that I can safely guarantee has NO ties to any sort of racist groups. These folks say "Never again!" and mean it.
